Excellent professor, very detailed assignments so you know exactly what to expect. The previous comments are inaccurate, if you respect his policies and turn your assignments in on time, you will do fine in his classes. He is very detailed oriented so make sure you read, re-read, and re-re-read his assignment instructions and you'll do fine.

Had crazy rules on every assignment and project on both how they were done and the way they were submitted and lengthy explanations to everything that only served to confused people. Very boring and clearly stuck in a time long past.

Assignments are outlined on a website that is randomly updated with new material. Assignments simple or complex are outlined in 3-8 page PDF files. You must read the entire thing to know what to, where it could have been outlined in 3-5 sentences. VERY boring. He had to approve my co-op 2 weeks after I was far, far away from his class. NEVER again

Do not recommend. Clearly an administrator. Lectures are boring and useless, material covered was mostly useless, major projects were crammed into three weeks with ludicrous deadlines. Writes essays for assignment and document, unbearable to read 20 page assignment requirements and try to understand what you need to do.

The most fundamental problem is that I don't think he has any knowledge to offer me. The ideas hey tries to convey often seem inaccurate, and his delivery is mediocre. The homework is little more than busywork. The only valuable part of the class might be practice presenting. It's made me reconsider whether college is right for me.

An old school professor that likes to combine many supplementary sources into lectures. Class exams were okay if you are able to learn the material on your own. Lectures are dry and disorganized. Expect a high work load. Spends way too much time on procedure. The syllabus was about 26 pages long...

Very Rude & Cold Personality! just hope that you don't get into trouble & have to go to his office - whether assignment issue or CS related issue, because he will not listen to you and will only tell you his opinion of you. My advise, avoid him at all costs! I have yet to hear from a CS student who is in good terms with him or remotely liked him.

Might as well not teach based on how much he uses the book. Unreasonable and has ridiculous amount of rules( will NOT take a paper if it isnt stapled 100% correctly and then -50% late penalty.

Hank is overall not a bad guy. He just has a strange personality. He likes to show off how much he knows, which makes him seem like an ass. He, however, isn't horrible at teaching and you can easily pass his class with a B or an A if you can handle boredom everyday.

I hate his presence and I have no idea how he became the head of the CS department. I almost left RIT because of this guy's rudeness and behavior. If you are unfortunate to be in CS department - just avoid him!

I don't see what the big deal is. I thought he was very straight forward and clear. I can see how some would say he's boring, but I don't see it. He's a fair grader, and gives partial credit. He is picky on little things, but that's him. He's a B+ to an A professor, only students who want a spoon fed grade complain.

Terrible professor/teacher/lab instructor. He basically decided to do an experiment with us in terms of grading and lab work, and had us suffer for it's demise. I did my best to switch labs before he could ruin my grade too much. Avoid at all costs.

Seriously, just avoid him...all he does is complain for hours, and put people to sleep. And, he's really anal about assignments being absolutely perfect the way he wanted them, or you'd pretty much barely pass. Just stay away.

I have nothing against him personally, but he's a terrible professor. Also had him for an advisor, and while he's better, he motivates by negative reinforcement. Do yourself a favor and AVOID HIS CLASSES!!!

OH MY - it was a challenge not to fall asleep in class witht his guy rambling on and on. Terrible professor, doesn't teach very well. You'll do fine if you already know CS, but if you don't, don't bother taking him.
